“When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a terrifying creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not truly a beast, but one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled her world.
At least, he’s not a beast all the time.
As she adapts to her new home, her feelings for the faerie, Tamlin, transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But something is not right in the faerie lands. An ancient, wicked shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it, or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.”

My honest review:
I love this book. It had me feeling all sorts of things. Sadness at Feyre and Lucien’s backstories, anger at Amarantha for everything she has done, happy when the characters triumph, and so much more. The characters were as well developed as the world, and I found that many times throughout this book it felt as if I was in the story with them.
This book is in that weird spot where it’s slower paced at the beginning but speeds up near the end. And in this book, that was not a bad thing. The time spent on all the details, and feelings Feyre had was amazing, and just made the story that much better.
There is a pretty explicit sex scene however, so I would recommend you don’t read it if you are under 16.
I really enjoyed this book and though it doesn’t feel necessary to read the next book right away, it is definitely one of my most anticipated books on my TBR.

Have a great day and happy reading!
